FS Renaissance is a display stencil typeface by the Monotype Studio. A collaboration between lettering artist and designer Craig Black and Creative Type Director Pedro Arilla, the single style font explores the intersection between art and design. With artist and designer working hand in hand, each letter was crafted as a standalone piece of art, while working harmoniously together as a functioning typeface.
Burlingame is a multi-purpose font family that started out as a single typeface with a more specialist purpose: it was originally intended for a game identity. It has found a wider purpose following pioneering investigations by Monotype into the legibility of vehicle displays. The research revealed a set of optimum criteria for dashboard display fonts: large counters and x-heights, simple shapes and a loose spacing of characters.
A search of Monotype’s own library turned up nothing that fitted the bill exactly, so Carl Crossgrove was asked to develop his game font, Burlingame, suited to a wide range of uses, from packaging and publishing to game and motion graphics.
Macklin is inspired by the era when type leapt off the pages of books and onto large-scale posters and advertisements. With a distinct twist on its typographic predecessor, Macklin’s sharp yet elegant forms push the superfamily to a place that’s more suited to contemporary use and modern design.
Ambiguity embraces both tradition and radicality, as well as generosity and thrift, encouraging us to question our beliefs about the intersection of style and meaning. With five distinct states of being—Tradition, Radical, Thrift, Generous and Normate—Ambiguity merges established concepts with inverse proportions, creating an exciting tool for tweaking text and expressing a range of attitudes and beliefs—from conventional to unorthodox and frugal to extravagant.
Helvetica® Now is a new chapter in the story of perhaps the best-known typeface of all time. Available in three optical sizes—Micro, Text, and Display—every character in Helvetica Now has been redrawn and refit; with a variety of useful alternates added.
Drawn specifically for comfortable reading on-screen and in print, Mundo Serif is ready to take on just about any project. While primarily designed for text copy in print and digital, Mundo Serif becomes a powerful display type tool in the lightest and boldest weights. Headlines, navigational links and banners are naturals for this versatile collection of typefaces.
The design benefits from large international character set that includes support for most Central European and many Eastern European languages. For a stronger contrast, pair Mundo Serif with virtually any sans serif grotesque design.
Monarda™ is Terrance Weinzierl’s take on the loud and splashy brush scripts of the 1950s. It’s energetic, playful, and equally at home in hardcopy headlines as it is in interactive banners. In addition to the basic alphabet, OpenType® fonts of Monarda are also awash in super-sized swash caps, contextual alternate characters and ligatures.
Unexpected details appear throughout the design, from its wedged diagonals and single storey ‘a’, to its round tittles – which would more ordinarily be square, and mechanical – the warmth and quirkiness of its character really shines through when set at larger sizes, making this a typeface for posters, headlines, and anywhere else designers need to make a statement.
